Individualism & the Attack on African Identity

African identity is much more than glamorizing our past. For proponents of Pan-Africanism it’s really a recognition that there are 2 billion Africans worldwide, living in 120 countries and in each of those countries we occupy the bottom of society. And, at the core of this is the continued subjugation of Africa.  . . .

We Charge Colonialism Repatriation Platform

We Charge Colonialism is an anti-imperialist Pan-Africanist organization primarily based in the United States takes the position that African people are faced with two plausible choices for our liberation. 1) Return to our mother Continent of Africa and fight for self-determination for the African continent; or 2) Stay here and fight for internal-self-determination in the United States, a manifestation of the Black nationalism Malcolm X and others advocated for, that is control over the social, political, and economic institutions in our communities. . . .

African people’s struggle against oppression, colonialism, zionism, and imperialism is commemorated each year with African Liberation Day. Founded on April 15th,1958 by Dr. Kwame Nkrumah, the First Conference of Independent States was held in Accra, Ghana, and attended by eight independent African states.

Cuba and the Struggle for Black Liberation

Black people have had a long, brutal, and disgusting history in the US & Cuba because of the Trans-Atlantic slave trade which is connected to colonialism that then became imperialism in the 20th century. The Spanish were the ones to first establish a population of enslaved Africans to begin working on  exports that would be used to enrich the colonizers in the 16th century. The genesis of enslaved Africans first coming  into Cuba could be traced to 1511 when Diego Velasquez conquered the island of Cuba in 1511-12.

Why We Focus on Africa

Black Alliance For Peace  Africa can’t demonstrate independence and power because the entire continent has a giant U.S. military boot on its neck. With reports each week of yet another Black victim of police violence, there is for many an ever-growing desperation. As activists search for a way forward, Africa’s plight does not find its way on to the movement agenda. But there is good reason to be concerned about what goes on in Africa. The problems there and the problems here are related. Africa has long been the focus of foreign exploitation of the continent’s land, resources, and people. . . .

The History of Systemic Theft of Indigenous Lands

In 2020, it should be first knowledge with everyone that the Western Hemisphere is the land of the people indigenous to this hemisphere. And, that the reason these folks are not in possession of these lands today is because of a systemic, violent, and uncompromising process to steal these lands from them. . . .

Political Copaganda & The General Elections

Earlier this week, after months of viral pleas and open letters and less than 100 days from the general election, Joe Biden finally announced his Vice Presidential running- mate would be Senator Kamala Harris.  With a political career predicated on the criminalization of poor working-class Black people in the Bay Area of California, it came as no surprise to many that Harris would have been chosen. However, what is surprising is the inability of many of us to recognize counter-insurgency and neo-colonialism when directly facing it.  Harris was both a chief legal advisor and chief law officer to the California . . .
